The Magic in A Winter Flame

She loved him so much it hurt sometimes. "I love him so much it hurts me."

Eve was very much in the mould of her aunt with her big bosom and the nipped-in waist of a fifties film starlet.

There was a gorgeous orange and cinnamon sorbet at Christmas.

We used to have a twelve-foot Christmas tree and every visitor had to bring a bauble for it.

There was a conical cabin selling soup and hot chocolate.

The buffet that awaited them was a feast to behold. The caterers had excelled themselves with tiny two-bite sandwiches: turkey and stuffing, pork and apple, Wensleydale and red onion chutney, prawn and curried mayonnaise. There were the diddiest little mince pies with a brandy butter swirl, caramel apple crumbles with custard, mini tubs of Christmas pudding ice cream. Latticed pies, pastries, miniature chocolate rum roulades were on the list too.

Ashley Madison - sadism!

The tagline is 'Life is short, have an affair'. Ridiculous! How can there be satisfaction in destroying marriages and families, with a temporary fling? "Not that the website cares". Thank goodness, access to it has been blocked in Singapore.

My Princess

Another Korean drama has enticed me! It is a fairy-tale drama about a diplomat who helps a princess to restore the Korean monarchy but ends up falling in love with her. A few factors render this drama appealing to me:

- soundtrack
- chemistry between the lead actors
- the male lead's good looks
- romantic scenes and script portions

In contrast to the previous dramas I have watched, the fashion worn by the female lead does not really attract me and there is not much contemporary food/culture in this drama. Perhaps the distant and unrealistic plot is the cause. After all, it is about a princess and this word has already prejudiced my mindset against the fashion worn by her.
